Many men and women have given their lives for our nation, attempting to retain our freedom and protect America from its enemies.

Establish boundaries in all situations

Q: You've often said that parents should not be "involved" with their children, but rather should establish a clear boundary in the parent-child relationship. I agree in principle, but as a homeschooling mom, I have no choice but to be highly involved with my kids. Can you help me resolve this conflict?

Thanks for forum for opinions

Editor, Thanks a lot for printing most of my letters over the years and withholding the ones that would have gotten me arrested. I am preparing to move north to New York City and will sorely miss all the reasons I chose to write those letters while I lived here. I'm not sure the New York Times is going to print my thoughts, but I'll still send them my ramblings when I feel it is needed.

Man cherished by many belongs to all

It happened a few months back. My father-in-law celebrated, to our great joy, his 88th birthday. There was no pomp or circumstance involved. He abhors that. Because he is among the most beautifully well-mannered people I have ever encountered, he politely took all the calls though he really wished we would just treat it as another day and leave him alone to watch the news channel.

Fort Stewart Experiences Unique Birth

Rushed, often unexpectedly early baby deliveries are not something new to any hospital. In most cases though, at least the mother makes it inside the building before giving birth. That wasn't quite the case at Fort Stewart, Georgia's Winn Army Community Hospital in the early morning hours of Jan. 15.

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, chairman of the Economic Development and Tourism Committee, and a member of the House's Ways and Means Committee, last week was a busy one for me.

We also listened as state agencies offered input about budget needs and then asked questions regarding which programs worked well or were under- or over-funded.
